Enjoying a nice month of August: As you can see, the tomatoes are growing like crazy. Now the big round ones are ripening. This morning: stuffed tomatoes, using farce à tomates (seasoned sausage meat) that I bought at the supermarket.
I just went out and did a fairly thorough watering of the garden. The white eggplants are getting big. There are dozens of little purple eggplants. The ears of corn continue to fill out, as do the lima, wax, and pole beans.
This week, I found the car I want to buy. Here's a picture of the "old" car — it is nearly 9 years old now — the Peugeot 206. It's a good car that we will probably keep, at least for a while. We can always sell it later if we decide we really don't need two cars.
Walt spends an hour or two every day sawing wood for the winter. This week we set up the tent in the yard to see what shape it is in. It had been 3 years since the last time we put it up. We slept in it night before last. It was nice a cool out there, compared to the house.
I bought two rabbits at the supermarket on Wednesday. I plan to make rabbit rillettes (potted meat) again. Or maybe lapin à la moutarde (rabbit in a mustard sauce). After the stuffed tomatoes, of course, which I'm off to prepare now.
